My First Retired Happy Hour

Hey guys, I waited as long as I could. Now for a cold Fat Tire at 3:49PM.

Had a gorgeous 2 hour ride around noon. Beauty!

I have a mandatory furlough in the first week of August. That will be kind of like being retired. Unfortunately, it's only a week long.

We can ride here. Or we can ride there. Or somewhere else.

Like hills? We got some good ones here.

No, you will not be bored! I did that life for a good 10 years and LOVED every day (still only working barely part time) I'm off till mid January so if you need a recovery ride partner, let me know.

Congrats on your retirement! Glad you finally got it done!

So now you have time for RAIN, RAAM, RAGBRAI, RAA (Ride Across Asia?) etc. Seriously, there are some very cool cycling tours in some pretty exotic places. Vietnam, Europe, Australia
